Vanderpump’s Lie Detector

Community ally Lisa Vanderpump is facing some heat.  On a recent episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Vanderpump was taking a lie detector test (I don’t watch, so I don’t know why).  When they strapped her in, she said, “Just don’t ask me if Erika’s tucking or something like that, because there are some things I can’t lie about.”  The comment was aimed at fellow Housewife Erika Jayne – who has never identified as transgender.  Candis Cayne jumped in saying, “Oh come on @lisavanderpump joking about @erikajayne “tucking”  Ugly Trans jokes marginalizing our community are not acceptable.  Being an ally doesn’t give you a free pass To make transphobic remarks.  Do better”  Vanderpump quickly apologized.  “It was not my intention to belittle the trans community with my poor choice of words directed towards Erika.  I have nothing but respect and love for trans people around the world, as I have been a staunch supporter, provided employment, offered emotional support and championed LGBTQ issues.”  Most applauded her addressing the issue immediately.

By the by, The Hollywood Museum is celebrating Pride month with their seventh annual exhibit, Real to Reel: Portrayals and Perceptions of LGBTQs in Hollywood.  At the opening on June 6th, the Hollywood Legacy award is going to…Lisa Vanderpump!  The Hollywood Future award will go to Tyler Henry – but I’m sure he already knew he was gonna get it.  You can get more information about the exhibit at
